100% Garnacha sourced from three villages within Sierra Santa Cruz, Aragon.  Hand-harvested  partially destemmed but not crushed. Fermented for 20 days in concrete vats and for a gentle seven-day post-fermentation maceration. 80% is aged 6 months in concrete tanks and neutral French and American oak, the remaining in solely concrete eggs.

"The 2021 Evodia comes from a cold year with snow, frost and some extreme temperatures (-18 degrees Celsius!) but an average rest of the season, some hail in July(!) and quite a lot of rain in early October, so not a year without challenges. They estimate a 25% decrease in yields, but the grapes picked before the rain delivered fresh wines with good aging potential. This finished at 14.6% alcohol and with good freshness and acidity. It fermented with some 15% full clusters in concrete, and 60% of the volume remained in concrete while the rest was equal parts in used 225-liter barrels and large oak vats for five months. It was a very challenging year, but the result feels great, a cooler and fresher vintage than 2020 and 2022. It's a fragrant Garnacha, a fruit-driven and juicy effort with super fine tannins and a balanced mouthfeel. Volume has gone down and price has gone up a bit, but the quality has also grown and it's still a great bargain. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2023."
